Dialogue in the Dark – An Exhibition to Discover the Invisible, is how the Dialogue Museum describes itself. Here, you will experience a lightless tour with changing themed rooms. You will be guided in small groups of visitors by blind and visually impaired people and thus gain a completely different perception.
You will have to rely on your senses, independent of your eyesight, and will discover the world for yourself in a new way. Listen to how sound changes when you change rooms or approach a wall.
Experience the daily life of a visually impaired person and feel a sharpening of the senses, and learn about their strengths. The museum opened in 2005 and is committed to both empathy and inclusion.
Senckenberg Nature Museum
The Senckenberg Nature Museum was opened in 1821 as the Naturalienkabinett. Today, it is considered one of the most important natural history museums in Europe and is run by the Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung.
A highlight of the exhibition are the dinosaur skeletons, including the 18-metre-long skeleton of a diplodocus. In addition to many original skeletons, you can also admire replicas of Tyrannosaurus rex, Iguanodon and Triceratops. But also, exhibits of the proboscideans and whales, a primitive bird and the cave bear, as well as various large reptiles, are on display. In another part of the museum, you can marvel at stones and minerals and fossils of invertebrates from prehistoric times.
This is only a selection, as the museum contains several thousand exhibits.
In 2010, a mecca for classic-car fans in particular and car enthusiasts in general was created in a former Mayfarth agricultural machinery factory dating from 1910. The building alone is worth a visit. Admire a completely preserved brick façade with large arched windows, impressive outbuildings and an outdoor area of almost 20,000 sq m.
Here, you will find workshops, showrooms and event locations. Dealers offer top-class sports cars here, but also collectors' items from long-forgotten times. You can watch racing teams in their preparations and take advantage of various car-related services. When your feet get tired, stop off at the Werkskantine restaurant and let yourself be pampered.
Old Opera House
Located in the Opernplatz in Frankfurt, the building, which was completed in 1880, is a concert and event venue. The first performance on 20 October 1880 was Don Giovanni by Mozart.
Kaiser Wilhelm I was present for the inauguration of the newly built opera house. It is interesting to note that on 19 March 1944, again after a performance of Don Giovanni, the house was so badly destroyed in an air raid that no more performances were possible. The reconstruction of the Alte Oper took over 30 years, and on 28 August 1981, it was reopened with Gustav Mahler's 8th Symphony.
Today, the Alte Oper mainly hosts concerts. If you are interested in attending one, we will be happy to assist you.
Museum of Modern Electronic Music
MOMEM – the Museum of Modern Electronic Music – is a newly opened museum near the Hauptwache. Music lovers of techno, house and electronic dance music in general will get their money's worth here. There are also workshops, lectures and much more. The first special exhibition is dedicated to Sven Väth.
Among other things, you can admire his light object Agony and Ecstasy, which is the title of the two poles of nightlife. Photos are also on display, e.g. Cocoon1 by Andreas Gursky, taken at Amnesia on Ibiza. The MOMEM is a unique project worldwide where visitors are also allowed to play records themselves.
The German Romanticism Museum is the first museum devoted entirely to this era. It is located in Grosser Hirschgraben between the Goethehöfe and the Goethehaus, which is integrated into the Romanticism Museum.
Construction began in 2016 and was completed in 2021 and includes an inner-city residential complex, a courtyard and the venue for the Flying People's Stage. Permanently on display are works by Caspar David Friedrich and other Romantics.
However, not only light is shown, as the dark sides of the epoch, with its irrational, melancholic features and the shaping of human madness, are also pointed out.
